He said, on August 15, despite the fear of a major cyber attack in the country, 90 percent of CII-affiliated institutions are not considering the ICT division’s guideline seriously.

Zunayed Ahmed Palak said, “Next month, I will organize a meeting with the heads of 29 institutions including Bangladesh Bank Governor, NBR Chairman, Chief Secretary, Cabinet Secretary, So that no one can make any excuse.

About the threat of cyber attacks, he said, ‘We received messages from two important places about two weeks ago that a major cyber attack will be launched on the critical infrastructure of Bangladesh in August. I have sent that warning to 29 institutions belonging to CII.

We are doing our best to prevent attacks. Taking August 15 more seriously we have information that several groups may attack that day. There may be attacks before and after this. That warning has been given in today’s meeting.

The state minister also said, “CII-affiliated institutions are not preparing according to our warnings.” This is why the risk remains. My biggest concern is—if security guidelines are not followed and data is compromised as a result, If we lose data and money then our country can face a big loss. For this reason, I have again warned everyone today that the minimum guidelines must be followed.
